    I'm curious what causes some members to put a quote in one post then put their reply in a second post. I see you are using Tapatalk but I also see this from members not using that app. I'm not sure why this is happening. When you quote someone you don't have to hit "Post Reply" before you start typing your reply. Please keep the quote and your reply within the same post. It may seem that they are magically being merged together after you post your reply but that is manually being done by an admin or moderator.

    I also have to correct a lot of fudged quote attempts where people end up posting their reply within the quote box. I know why this happens; people start typing before the quoted text has a chance load in the reply box...usually due to a slow internet connection. Please don't start typing until the text your have quoted is showing in the reply box. If it isn't loading your internet connection is not very good. Please reload the page and try to hit the "Reply" button again.

    A reply with quoted text should look like this in the reply box:
    Code:
    [QUOTE="a username, post: ####, member: ####"]
    The quoted text goes here.
    [/QUOTE]
    You reply goes here, outside of the two "QUOTE" brackets.

    It's very kind of @Wrye to correct those pesky misquotes. Do you think you could maybe correct some of the common spelling mistakes that some people make.
    You know like; color, gray and check? Etc..

    Colour (with an u) is not wrong. It is british english while color is US english. No need to correct.

    colour, COLOUR, C0l0ur. Just testing to see if I get auto-corrected (or scolded for going off topic) :clown:

    I see I got some auto-corrections. I shall have to report this to the proper authorities for prejudice based on c o l o u r !!! Racism I say, this forum does not support the c o l o u r of British people! :cigar: :clown: :jimlad:

    Nonsense. This forum is colourblind.
